That light tells you two thing's . The parking brake is set or there is a problem with the brakes . Time for brakes pads to be replaced or there is a brake fluid leak . There is a fluid level sensor in the master cylinder fluid reservoir that will turn on that light if the fluid level gets to low . When brake pads get worn the brake caliper piston pushes out farther lowering the fluid level turn on the red brake light . It's a warning to have your brakes checked .

I have a 2006 Dodge Caravan brake lights stay on


There is a crossed wire or a pinched wire somewhere in the wire bundle causing a back feed from one circuit to another. That's the worst kind to trouble shoot because to find it you have to uncover the wire harness from the dash all the way to the brake lights. That means a lot of trim and panel removal.

My 2006 dodge charger is stuck in park how do i repair it


When the car gets stuck in park it is due to the park lock system, the system will not release unless the brake lights are on so if you have no brake lights then the gear shifter will not move. Check the brake lights first.

After Changing the battery in my 2006 Dodge Magnum all the lights on the dash lights up and it's stuck in park


Forget about the dash lights, the brake light switch is bad, the shifter is powered through the brake light switch, change it and it will be fine.

Shifter on my 2006 dodge charger is stuck in park cant move at all in either direction


If your car has "shift lock" which unlocks the shifter when the brake pedal is depressed and you are doing so, but does not unlock the shifter try this...
Look under the dash, on the brake pedal arm. There are one or two switches that activate brakes lights and shift unlock. Check for loose mounting nut or a missing rubber nubber. Look on the floor for something not usually found there. These switches are adjustable and it may be as simple as adjusting them. Have a helper look for brake lights on and shift lever unlocked while you push the switches with your finger. Remember to set the park brake first. Could just be a bad switch or loose connector.

My 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan brake lights will not go off. I checked the energency brake.


Good Evening, the first place to start is to look down by your brake pedal and pull it up and see if your brake light goes off. (this is of course assuming it is your brake light behind the vehicle) If it is the brake light on the dash check your brake fluid level and be sure that is full ( on the minivans this is the #1 cause I run into for the light being on the dash). However if it is your rear brake lights suspect your brake switch up under the dash attatched to a bracket by the pedal. Hope this helps whichever way it is.
Thanks,
Joey

I cannot get the gear to shift down


check the brake lights, the shifter has a safety feature that will not allow u to shift out of park if your foot is not on the brake and the brake lights are working, if the brake lights are working there is a bypass to get it out of park under a little cover next to the shift handle.
